Significant Temperature Records at Stations

« National Overview - September 2012


Significant Temperature Records at Stations

Although September was not as unusually warm as the months that preceded it, parts of the country did see some waves of record warmth, for maximum temperatures ("afternoon highs") and minimum temperatures ("overnight lows"). The following tables present some of the more extreme record-breaking temperatures for stations with at least a 60-year period of record. Note: These data are preliminary. Many stations still report via paper and U.S. Mail, and may not be captured in this list. Until data are final, most counts of records for September 2012 are likely to be underestimates.
